Historical Accuracy: Found in both Shoes and Pattens by the Museum of London and Stepping Through Time by Olaf Goubitz, Carol van Driel-Murry, and Willy Groenman-van Waateringe, this shoe is a typical nobleman's and noblewoman's shoe for the 13th through 14th Centuries. It is the quintessential Middle Ages shoe from medieval times.
There are five different lengths of point as described in Shoes and Pattens, 0 being a rounded toe and .5 being grossly exaggeratedly long points. The 14th Century Poulaine, Poulain, crackowes, or pike-toed shoe is a magnificent medieval shoe with a .3 toe. This shoe is dated from 1300 to 1500 and fell in and out of favor often. Sumptuary laws were written to govern the wearing of this shoe.
Construction: The 14th Century Medieval Turn Shoes are constructed and sewn by hand using the historically documented methodology. (No machine stitches) (No Nails) Linen thread is used for the edge-to-edge seam to connect the leather of the multiple piece upper shoes and uses the edge/flesh seam to attach the shoe to the hard vegetable tanned sole. The shoe is constructed inside out and turned right side out as the last step, and that is how they get the type of name of “turn shoe.”
